Driven by high power costs, grid reliability concerns and carbon reduction targets, Australia’s mining industry is actively exploring alternative energy options.
New and operating remote mines are assessing the cost savings and carbon reduction benefits renewables offer when integrated with diesel and gas-powered generators. While grid-tied sites are reviewing behind-the-meter renewables options to counteract rising electricity costs and grid instability challenges.
Following nine Summits in the other key global mining centres – Canada, Chile, South Africa and the UK – the Energy and Mines Australia Summit will provide a timely platform for mining leaders to meet with renewables, storage, finance, government and carbon mitigation experts to explore solutions for affordable, reliable, and low-carbon power for mines.
"It was a fantastic event. It was well organised, informative and it covered a wide range of issues that are challenging the industry today while offering up real solutions for the future of energy."Nick Boyle, CEO, Lightsource
"The conference reached more mining companies from all over the world and the quality of the presentations were at its best."Michel Carreau, Director Energy, Hatch
The aim of this workshop is to provide renewable energy professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the mining industry. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the operational practices pivotal to mining, be able to interpret essential terminology and feel more comfortable interacting with core mining staff by having a clearer understanding of the key concepts involved in mining.To see full detail
“The Energy & Mines Congress permitted us to meet a mining Vice-President looking for new technologies to resolve a challenging project. Our proposal immediately corresponded to their needs and started a new business relationship.”Stephan Tapp, Market Development Manager, G+ Plastics
Energy and Mines is the leading global information and event media provider for energy management and operations of the mining sector. Through its global event series (Canada, South Africa, Chile, UK), web portal, and newsletter, Energy and Mines brings together the mining and renewable energy sectors to drive solutions for affordable, reliable and sustainable power for mines.
Over the last four years, Energy and Mines has built a reputation amongst the mining and renewables sectors as the first point of contact for connection and information on renewables in mining. We have strong links with senior mining leaders, renewable energy developers and key players driving the technology, research and development in this space.
